Re: What's Going On In Nashville? - 2018

I wonder how much of DL's BNA-SEA traffic is connecting to Asia. That may be a big factor in why it is flown year-round.

I also wonder how much of WN's BNA-SEA traffic is connecting through BNA, and where that traffic connects on WN when the route is not flown.
